    Awesome plog! I'm in the process (very slow process) of building a similar board. I have the same old GW article as you, so some of your buildings look identical to mine!

    Some of my concerns with my project:

    I want to make some road tiles (to create some open space among all the ruins), but how to make the surface of the road itself? Plasticard? Maybe fine sandpaper to get a tarmac-y feel?

    What is the best way to make rubble piles? I'm currently looking into combining smashed up plaster, cut up GW sprue and sand to get different sized bits. I've seen kitty litter used as well, but I don't know how it would work. For creating large piles of rubble I intend to cut a rough shape in polystyrene to get the shape of the mound and then glue rubble on top. This should make it more lightweight and less material will be needed.

    Keep up the great work!

    --------------------------------
    Hiya!

    Sorry it's taken so long to answer your question! I will be resuming construction of my board (well, it really just needs detail painting!) in the next month here - along with pictures and tutorials.

    To answer your concerns:

    Road tiles can be tricky; I made mine using the mdf boards used for the rest of the table. Instead of sanding it like the rest of the board though, I decided to add minimal texture using a brush and "painting" on a mixture of sand, glue, and water (this mixture should be the consistency of heavy cream). Some of my buddies have used materials like cork for roads too.

    My process for rubble was similar to the ones used from an old gw article. Using a meat grinder (you can just use clippers) I take sprues and cut them into little pieces. I then take clay and place it around parts of buildings where I want the rubble to be. Then I stick the cut up sprues and other building pieces in the clay. I then immediately use an old brush and stipple some glue in the crevices to secure the sprues. I add a bit of sand and voila.

    Hope this helps - if you want, I can make a visual tutorial with pictures!

    Hello!

    Finished spraying the entire table - now the details just need to be done. But everything is (for lack of a better word) basecoated. I really like how this table turned out - it's been 10 years of prochrastination but I'm happy it's finished.

    It looks great all laid out like that. The fighting is going to be up close and personal on that table.

    It may have been a long project but it looks great. Great scatter as well.

    I'll be painting these buildings with slight details - honestly, they look good regardless of details!

    Yeah I agree: very nice as is but even better once you pick out some details. That will really elevate them.

    Oh, how I loved the old cities of death pieces. so much detail, so many options and it made ruins feel like actual ruins in the game.

    I wonder if it was detailed?
